Daedric: you can either do a complicated setup on your computer that depends on OS/version to explain, or you can log into your router where you also do the port forewarding, there's usually something like 'DNS' where you can tick 'always assign the same ip to this client' ...

Your IP as seen from the outside is handled by your internet provider. If it's not static, your only option is to change plan or provider.

I tried the port forwarding method, but their website has no guides for Linux computers or the Minetest game. I think I managed to do the port forwarding anyway after looking at a dozen vague instructions, but my server still isn't showing up on the public server list, please help me!

I installed minetest-server (0.4.14) package from linux repository. Where is the folders: "mods", "games", "worlds" and minetest.conf???? In user directory are only empty .minetest folder. I find nothing in wiki about this.
EDIT: After first run was created /home/user/.minetest/worlds/. I find another folders by running minetest and then minetestserver --info. Most folders are in /usr/share/games/minetest. I think this need add to wiki.

JUST GO TO sign up for the free plan or any paid plans "free plan does not require credit card info." then go to my worlds tab then create a world. make name, default privs, its self explanatory really. then BAMMMM!!!!! YOU HAVE A SERVER!!!!!!!!!!! ALL YOU NEED IS EMAIL AND CREATE A PASSWORD DONE. AND NO NEED TO KEEP YOUR COMPUTER RUNNING THE SERVER IS RAN BY THE SITE. LOG IN ANYWHERE ANYTIME TO CHECK ON YOUR SERVER. DO COMMANDS, BAN, KICK AND ALL THE GOOD STUFF. ALSO PLAY IT FROM ANY MINETEST CLIENT. ITS LIKE A SERVER CREATION FOR DUMMIES:D i tried it out and it works good. but i do perfer getting at least the $5 plan if your going to use their site. otherwise you just have basic mods on it. and their wont be any mods to use to protect things like your spawn town$5 plan recommended. but you can always just use the free one. GOOD LUCK.

Or just don't go to a hoster which is overpriced and don't let you control your mods and so on...
